Replace Carpet With Vinyl Planks?

Recommended Posts

Our fifth wheel living room sideout does not have rollers. When it come in, it tilts up a little and glides over the carpet. We were told to stay with carpet. If not, as the side comes in it would scar the vinyl or wooden floor. Makes sense to me.

However, we would if possible, like to get rid of the carpet. Is there a non scaring flooring product we could use?

Can install some Masonite runners when you work the slides to prevent flooring from being contacted.  Or some thin acrylic sheet material cut into strips as runners.

I've heard of people using inexpensive plastic placements for this purpose.

Placements??  Or perhaps place mats?  If so, a really good idea.  Inexpensive and many have some non-slip backing.

Actually the vinyl planking will be lower than your carpet. 

This. no carpet at all in our house.

and on your slides, you will need a 5/8 subfloor (if you have level slides with the carpet.)
